The following groups of photos were submitted to me by various veterans who were on this flight to Alert. As you can imagine, I have received numerous photos, many of which are duplicated, - almost everyone had a camera. I can only put so many photos on the website, so I hope individuals aren't offended if all their pics are not here. If you have pics you believe are unique, please send them to me and I will have a good look at them. Thanks in advance for your cooperation.

The photos and sets of photos are in no specific order and they pretty much cover take-off in Ottawa to Alert and back.
